NYC-ARTS, THIRTEEN’s weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase, brings arts lovers an all-access pass to the interesting, unusual and unique cultural offerings of the greater New York City region. Each year, the world-renowned Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts administers The Avery Fisher Career Grant, a prestigious award given to up to five outstanding instrumentalists. The award is intended to give significant recognition and support to instrumentalists who show great potential for solo careers. Co-hosted by New York Emmy Award winners Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn, NYC-ARTS showcases both world-renowned and local, community-based arts organizations.
